Portland's premier drag clown Carla Rossi hosts a semi-one-woman cabaret telling the story of two star-crossed lovers: Weimar Germany and contemporary America. "Carla Rossi Sings the End of the World" compares the whirling, progressive creativity and freedom of 1920s Berlin with America today via a piano-accompanied songbook of Berlin theatre standards (with pianist Maria Choban), and dance support from cabaret girls The Dolly Pops (led and choreographed by Tiffany Slottke). The always-sincerely insincere Carla guides the audience through this doomed romance with a winking eye and trademark banter, provoking us to acknowledge what became of Weimar Berlin and asking the question - could that happen to us?

This event is presented with ASL interpretation. 'Carla Rossi Sings the End of the World' is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.

Carla Rossi | 8:00 PM
CARLA ROSSI is Portland's foremost drag clown - an immortal trickster whose attempts at realness almost always result in fantastic failure. Carla has been featured at the the CAP Art Auction, Seattle PrideFest, the Risk/Reward Festival, and Conduit's Dance + Festival, along with a veritable buffet of monthly nightlife events where she has performed alongside drag legends like Coco Peru, Peaches Christ, Jinkx Monsoon, Bianca Del Rio, and many more. more >>>
